We designed various Sprinter (4X4) Side Steps in the last years and finally came up with the design and function of the Dutchvanparts steps.
Side steps are designed and built for the L3/170″ wheelbase.
The Side Steps come in a pair of two. The driver’s side provides a large, extra step at the front door only with tubes extending nearly to the rear wheel arch. This allows the Side Steps to be side ladder compatible. The driver’s side has special brackets to allow the installation of an extra tank underneath the van.
The passenger’s side is a double step for both the front and sliding door. The tube extends all the way from the front doors to the rear wheel arch. The step of the side door is slightly smaller for any tight corners.
The Side Steps stay within the outer dimensions of the van (mirror distance). And they can also be changed in the overhang position. More towards or further away from the van.
The Side Steps are mounted with special steel brackets that extend to the frame rail of the van, so they are not only mounted on the side sills themselves. There are 3 brackets on the driver’s side and 4 on the passenger side. The brackets will be mounted with blind rivet nuts in the steel frame of the van.
The Side Steps feature many options and are adjustable. They can be adjusted in an overhang position of 20mm per side. This will give you the option to have the best visual depending on the tires on the van. The large openings in the sidesteps allow mud and snow to through the panels easily and therefore remain grip. The sidesteps are designed in a way to lose the minimum amount of ground clearance to have the best off-road experience.
- CNC-bend tubing
- Aluminum step and tubes and steel brackets to the frame
- Includes Side Steps, vehicle attachment brackets, mounting materials, and manual.
- Installation requires the installment of rivet nuts.
Do these side steps also function as rock sliders?
They are designed to be lightweight and are not made from solid steel however small obstacles like rocks and wood does not harm your van as much anymore.
Will this also fit on 2WD vans?
Yes, however, a 2″ lift would be recommended.

Parcel or Freight
Orders will be shipped by either pallet or parcel depending on the product and/or order size. Certain products are only shipped by pallet. Adding such a product to your order will automatically mean a pallet shipping price will be calculated at checkout.
Parcel shipping prices are calculated per product as most products are very large and can not be combined into one parcel. Large orders of only parcel products may still be shipped on pallets for better shipping efficiency.
